ABOUT THE WINE
Classified as a 2eme cru classe, the largest of the 3 Leoville estates and with no doubt the leading one. This St Julien 97 hectares of vineyards with the main plot being surrounded by a wall are superbly sited. The wine predominantly cabernet sauvignon (65%) is matured in oak barriques (80% new) for 18 months. The wine is fermented at a lower temperature than average making it very aromatic and rich wine in his youth developing to a more powerful and concentrated wine with age.

ABOUT THE VINTAGE
If you like mature red Bordeaux then 1996 is probably your best bet, especially on the left bank of Medoc and graves. The growing season was rather wet like 95. But rain came often and little. by the time harvest started the grape just made it to full maturity.
